Dear SPNers,
Does the following lines stand good? Pl do give your views.

Almighty Lord means "ਪ੍ਰਭ"
Technique to merge in HIM is called “GUR”


[FONT=border=](GUR in Punjabi stands for Technique, Method or Formula).[/FONT]


Remember only a True and Complete Guru can provide “GUR”


That’s why to learn all this we enroll ourselves as a “Sikh.”


Sikh means a Student who is learning the Technique“GUR”


That’s exactly why we are called GURSIKH


Meaning student to learn the “GUR”


The Bani which delivers this technique is called “GURBANI”.


Mind you this is not GURUBANI but is GURBANI.


GURUBANI means which holds information about Guru’s life.


“GURBANI” means Information about


The technique of merging into The ALMIGHTYT LORD.


Hence, the “GURBANI” is our only “GURU.”


AND


The <st1:placetype>Ocean</st1:placetype> of <st1:placename>Knowledge</st1:placename> is “Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji”

Ek OnKaar Sat Naam

Hardip ji, as long as you are well motivated by Gurbani, and it raises your consciousness of the Almighty Lord in your mind, then any use of any colours, any words and sentences linked in any way are "good". Intuitive awareness (constant remembrance of the Lord), once established, will no longer depend upon any set pattern once it has been established, but patterns helps to create intuitive awareness. So anything can help.

Paramjit jee,
In hindi script, the word DWAR is same as DWARA. In poetry both the words carry equal force and stands for the word GATE only.

Re: What the word GURBANI stands for

and YES its GURDWARA and NOT GURuDWARA...and its just the GATE -- dwaar and not "house" as is always preached...s..
Nowadays Sikhs doing rituals and karamkaands have actually BRICKED UP the Guru's dwaar with GOLD BRICKS...its changed to DEWAAR !!! Not everyoen is welcome at such places especially if you a re poor/downtrodden so called low caste, in torn dirty clothes/naked etc..the sewadaar at the Gate will chase you away in a flick of the eye..thats why they have those long spear...try asking one of these for a place to stay in so called Saraan for pilgrims (constructed with goluck funds) or a place to sit behind the ragis doing kirtan at Darbar Sahib...they bark worse than a rotewiller and push you like you got leprosy....BUT a REAL LEPER with rotting extremities will get a PLACE and be welcomed IF he is Badals Man..or sgpc chamcha of some jathedar..or even a "Brahmgyani" from some dera...NO wonder the Fish are dying there...

Heres another reason why the Fish are DROWNING in shame...( Punjabi proverb sharam naal chappnnee wich naak dob ke marna - drown in a palmful of water due to shame)..

The Indian Presidnet visited the Darbar sahib Amrtisar YESTERDAY and in her read out address she called GURU GOBIND SINGH...as GURU GOBIND DASS !!! Not once but SEVERAL TIMES..and not a single sikh present had the guts to point out the gross insult and error which was WRITTEN DOWN and thus plainly deliberate.....and done at the HIGHEST SIKH SHRINE on the Holy day of Paraksh Ustav of its Founder Guru ramdass Ji......shame.:blueturban:

Re: What the word GURBANI stands for

Here it is....
http://www.sikhweekly.com/ The News item is in the centre with a pic of the President attached...news continues on page 14.
The news was also carried by the www.rozanaspokesman.com..

Not only was Guru Ji referred to as DASS several times, but the Leader of the Chali Muktas Bhai Mahan Singh was also referred to as MOHAN DASS.
All this in the presence of the Makkar SGPC president and the Bad-lads rulers of Punjab..

2. In the Chaparchirri Memorial ceremony the BJP leaders present continously called Baba Banda Singh as VEER BAIRAGEE and no one objected...same bad-lads and makkars also present there...

SUCH INCIDENTS serve to become a part of our HISTORICAL RECORD...just imagine how many Google searches will bring up the Presidents seech and GOBIND DASS as the Last Guru of the Sikhs...or Veer Bairagi who won the Battle of Sarhind...that is the whole POINT.
